The corps of instruc- tors in the Art School has been strengthened by the addition of Mr. Philip Muhr, an artist of very thorough training and acknowledged ability. Mr. Albert J. Adolph, whose recent work has also won dis- tinguished recognition, and who had charge of the evening class in inte- rior decoration last year, has this year had charge of this work in the day class as well. On the resignation of Mr. Calder, which was accepted with much regret, the Department of Modelling was reorganized under Mr. Chas. T. Scott, on a basis of closer association with the other classes and of more complete identification with the aims and methods which characterize the School. This means that less atten- tion has been paid to the study of the human figure and much more to the correlation of the modelling with the work in carving, in metal work, and in pottery and similar branches, as well as giving added emphasis to the study throughout the course of architectural and structural ornament, and the development of power in original design. The new building of the Pottery School was erected during the summer of 1904 and forms a most commodious addition to the facili- ities of the School. This addition to the room available for the clay working branches has also made possible the installation of the wood- working classes in two of the rooms on the first floor that had formerly been devoted to the work in modelling, thus making a much better arrangement of all these classes than had ever been possible before. The development of the wood-working classes in the direction of fur- niture making, under Mr. Torniten, which these increased facilities have made possible, is one of the noticeable advances of the year. A hanging gallery on the side of the building that overlooks the court- yard was also built during the summer, and provides a means of com- munication between the front and back buildings without the annoy- ance and loss of much needed space which were inevitable when the class rooms on this floor had to be used as thoroughfares. The building has also been improved by the introduction of a large window in the main drawing room on the first floor and by some important work in the wing occupied by the Textile School, including more adequate heating and ventilating of the dye house. Several valuable additions to the equipment of both the Art and Textile departments have been made. In the case of the Art School these consist largely of casts and photographs, and in the Textile School, of much new machinery in the Spinning, Dyeing and Weav- ing departments, especially in that of Jacquard Weaving, which has been much strengthened and developed, so that a considerable ad- vance in the production of the highest class of fabrics, in which the design is most distinctly artistic, has been achieved. In this develop- ment of the work of the Textile School in the direction of combining with its practical aims the methods and ideals of the School of Applied Art, most efficient service and generous support has been rendered by the Associate Committee of Women. The additional demands upon the power plant which the growth of the Textile School has necessitated have been partly met by the installation of a new gas engine. This relief is only partial, however^ as quite apart from any question of power the old boilers and boiler house badly need to be renewed and reconstructed in the interest of economy and efficiency of the heating system, and such a renewal is among the most urgent of the present needs of the School. Considerable additions to the equipment are also needed, espec- ially in the Textile School if the research work which has been so well begun and for which the demand is continually increasing is to go on. Numerous opportunities to pursue investigations and make tests regarding textile material and methods not only for industrial establish- ments but for theU. S. Government, have recently had to be declined for want of proper facilities. That such service should be solicited is in itself a kind of tribute to the usefulness of the School which is extremely gratifying and indicates very clearly the growing estimation in which the kind of education of which this institution is the earhest and fore- most exponent in America is coming to be held. The work of the Associated Alumni has been continued with unabated activity. The Alumni of the School of Applied Art have held a continuous series of exhibitions, receptions, sales and entertain- ments throughout the year. On their initiative and through their efforts, generously aided, as all our work has been, by the Associate Committee of Women, much substantial encouragement has been given to the more advanced students in the form of opportunity to carr>' out their designs, some very interesting furniture having been produced in this way which will be placed in the rooms occupied by the Alumni Association, in addition to several rather important pieces which are to be used in furnishing the lobby of the School. Through the same agencies a very substantial fund has been created, the income of which is to be available for the assistance of needy students of whom there are always a number in a school of this kind. The delicate and tactful administration of this fund by a board of trustees in which the Associate Committee of Women, the Alumni Association and the teaching staff are represented, has already been productive of much good and cannot fail to prove a means of increas, ing helpfulness in the future. The exhibit of work which was made at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition at St. Louis has, at the request of the State authorities, been transferred to Harrisburg, w^here it will be installed as part of the permanent Educational Exhibition which is to be established there. Two Prize Scholarships in the Textile School have been estab- lished by the firm of A. Kirschbaum & Co., and a similar scholarship in the School of Applied Art has been endow'ed by Miss Mary Williams and Mrs. Walter R. Stenger in the name of their father, the late Rynear Williams, Jr. A nearly continuous series of competitions in Industrial Design and Commercial Illustration has served to keep the classes in touch with the practical requirements of the interests which the School is organ- ized primarily to serve and has furnished gratifying evidence of the growing appreciation on the part of men of affairs, of the fundamental iact on which our system of instruction is based that the connection between Industrial Art Education properly understood and applied and the kind of efficiency in which the success of even commercial enterprises depends is direct and vital. The long list of gifts and benefactions which are the concrete expressions of this interest and appreciation, a list much too long to be published here, will be included in the Annual Report of the Corporation.
